Saffron and Sketching...

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to pop over to Croydon Saffron to take some photos with a view to coming up with a drawing of the farm. Croydon Saffron is a pop up farm right in the middle of Croydon on the former site of Taberner House, right opposite Fairfield Halls. 2016 is their second season (and possibly last - depending on when building work starts on the site) and I arrived on the day the first crocus flowered...

I took loads of photos on the day and went away, made a montage, and came up with a sketch which I worked on over the next week or so.

Anyway, here's my finished drawing which is now available as a print...

This past weekend I popped back with an A3 version or my print and to see more of the crocuses in bloom...

You can find out more about Croydon Saffron here - and keep up to date with any plans they end up with for a third season!
